Scheduling Resource Constrained Project Portfolios with the Principles of the Theory of Constraints

Title variants
Languages of publication
The paper presents a heuristic algorithm scheduling support project portfolios. It uses goal programming method, in order to identify critical resources within the meaning of E. Goldratt Theory of Constraints. Operation of heuristics is shown in a simple example. Its practical effectiveness can only be fully assessed until the computer implementation. It is planned in AIMMS environment.
